    How about Boss Monster in the penultimate panel of 619? It's a hanging thread and a blue dragon with goons would be CR-appropriate.

    I know I havenít been making the best guesses here, but I honestly donít think itís any of the gods (Hel tried to get involved and we see how that went) or any of the main characters family members. Weíve done the family thing for everyone but Belkar and I donít know if he even has a family?

    All that said I donít have any real serious guesses going. There are plenty of one-off nameless characters it can be.

    Obviously it's going to be the beholder from the first book. He's finally finished with the lawyers trying to prevent his big break.

    Surely. With the same high standards of seriousness we adopt for each and every speculation and predictions in this forum.
    Each one of us, alone, is but a drop in the sea
    Our powers pale compared with the great heroes
    Our battles donít hit theheadlines or shake the earth
    But they are few, canít be everywhere, and we, many
    So, when the world or universe needs saving, they come
    But when people needs saving, we are the ones to appear
    We're underdogs, but we rise up to the challenge to be heroes.

    We see a few of them just once I think.

    Mind you, Iím just guessing for fun. I doubt this will pan out
    Because they were teenagers then, now they'll have grown out of their good alignment syndrome, there will be other teenage goblins, but they'll be as low level as those were back then.

    I don't think it's her, but death is only a minor setback in this universe.

    Anyway, it can't be her, because it's clearly That Guy With A Halberd

    So the crew of the Mechane have probably already heard of Hel's plan and of Xykon. Perhaps not all of them shares Andy's and Five O'Clock Shadow's view from #1028 that the apocalypse is not the mechane's business. The Order can recruit an ally from them.

    It turns out that indeed some of the crew of the Mechane only appeared on one page so far. The crewman in yellow clothes and with earrings appears only in #934 third panel. #392 fourteenth panel shows three people throwing alchemist's fire, and two of them only appear on that one page (the middle one may or may not be the same as the person in #933 first panel).

    Guys. I've got it. There's only one person it possibly could be. We should've known.

    Batman.

    *cue dark orchestral music*

    Also, the green and orange voices? Green Lantern and Firestorm. It's all coming together...

    My slightly silly nomination is the Ranch Dressing Elemental.

    The Order of the Stick having an alliance with an Elemental Prince (even if it's the Prince of Ranch Dressing) seems like it could be both funny and resourceful.

    I also like to imagine Xykon being ambushed by these elementals and being covered in dip during the attack, which prompts the Monster in the Darkness to finally turn on and devour him since he smells so delicious.
    "1/0" is a paradox; in a way that "0/1" is not. [...] One is something, and Zero is nothing. [...] 1/0 is a cry out against mere logic and efficiency. Stuff exists. All existence, all truth, cannot be ultimately justified: it can only be described, explained, and enjoyed. 1/0 is illogical. 1/0 is irrational. 1/0 is impossible. 1/0 is transcendentally unfair. 1/0 is true. Deal with it.

    It may be a different elemental, but when V is sent there the first time a ranch dressing elemental is there

    However, Robin(aka circus acrobat boy) only appears in one panel in SOD, so it could be him.

    Maybe Roy's plan with Roy's Archon will succeed, and Heavens will send Sir Rover, the Blessed Hound, to help the Order.

    Nah, if you really want to mess with Xykon, you need a Coffee Elemental.

    So you think - but that's not the real Batman, that's actually the second Robin who is pretending to be Batman for the purposes of deceiving the third Robin who has now become evil and is trying to kill Batman, with the assistance of the fourth Batgirl and the second Batwoman and the sixth Alfred.

    So as you can see, via this artful and not at all ham-fisted retcon, the story totally holds up.

    Here's a weird possibility: the Priest of Tiamat from #571 (who raised the Oracle). I believe that is the sole page this Priest has appeared in.

    We've been given quite a few hints that Tiamat has reached out to The Dark One and she may have oracular powers of her own. While the IFCC has been able to dissuade her from acting against them so far, it may be that their plans for the Gate and her own diverge, forcing her to take action via her cleric and help OOTS oppose the IFCC and their vessel.

    Sure. It ties together a couple of long-standing mysteries (the "key way" in which Haley and Sabine are opposed; Haley's un-revealed secret) in a neat little way. It's wild speculation, obviously, but so is this entire thread.
